Amazing Villa located in the Paradise of Slovenia

  • 4 of 5

The Soca Valley is the "Paradise" of Slovenia. The Villa Hisa Zeenia is wonderful. We had a wonderful time there, secluded in nature, free from any noises and completely in love with all around us. The nights we passed hours watching the stars (incredible views!!), and during the day we visited wonderful places nearby.

If you love nature and you need a getaway from stress and city madness, this is the place!

Nearby you can find crystal clear rivers, lakes, mountains, horseback riding, excellent food ...

Why not a "5 star"? The pool needs to be built differently. This is the only reason.

Highly reccomended !!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for a lovely review and we are really glad you loved the house and the area. Your kind comments are appreciated. I note your point regarding the pool and your comment by email, please understand that Natural pools operate very differently to normal chlorinated pools, I believe you are referring to some algae that started to grow on the sides of the pool. Natural pools in high heat will start to produce algae, and as you requested you did not want anyone coming to the house during your stay we did not have the opportunity to remove this for you, normally every week we clean the pool and filters as its important for us to do so, but we respected your wishes not to be disturbed. We hope to welcome you back one day. Thank you.

Fantastic large house with great facilities

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 families staying for 2 weeks at this house.

The house is equipped with all the facilities you could need, Wifi, music system, internet TV, beautiful swimming pool and a large range of cooking and eating equipment. It is very clean and has lots of bathrooms. Each bedroom is plenty large enough. The views from the garden are fantastic!

The house is in a great location in the Soca valley with the lovely towns of Kobarid and Most na Soci not far away. For the quieter days I would highly recommend going to the Soca river bathing and diving spot in Slap ob Idrijci. It has a spring board and high diving board, plus football court and free use of the kayaks. There is also a picnic area to use.

This was a lovely holiday and the house was first class.

Fantastic House in Soca Valley

  • 4 of 5

stayed in this lovely house with another family so 9 of us in total and had plenty of room. great fresh water pool, cold but glad of it after the sun.

All house clean and tidy, well presented and lovely rooms, great beds and showers all what you would want and expect from a property as this.

Good service from the manageress of the house who met us on arrival even though we were late!

talked us through the ins and outs of the house and always on hand to call if we needed to know where to go see, best routes etc etc when exploring Slovenia.

went white water rafting, visited Bled via a car train which was just down the road and Ljubljana and had a dinner at Hisa Franko restaurant which is not cheap but give the tasting menu a go with wine flight.

spent a fair time trekking/biking as the scenery and views were fantastic along the rivers and canyons.

go if you can you wont regret it and try the house out its fun and the people of Slovenia are really friendly.
